When the phrase “low tech” is spoken around here, we’re immediately transported back to the tech binding renaissance of the early 90s that saw Dynafit introduce many category-defining products to the market. A descendant from this product lineage was the Superlite 2.0, which with its excellent lateral elasticity, adjustable lateral release, and fixed vertical release, satisfied most everyone looking for a capable yet lightweight binding that was built to withstand the test of time. As an ode to this period, Dynafit is releasing their “Low Tech” binding, which uses the chassis of the Superlite 2.0 but with a funky twist that celebrates the retro designs of years past. With the Low Tech binding, you have a chance to own a limited edition binding that embodies the true spirit of being Low Tech; lightweight, simple, and durable. Get yours before they’re gone.

Questions & Reviews
I’ve loved the simplicity of the speed turn 2s, however the ramp angle is really killing me, those heel tower pins are 16mm above the toes. So, I was going to shim, and though I’m sure the shim would help, it’s just raising me further from the ski base and accommodating that really rough heel tower. I’m wondering if I could buy this low tech heel piece and mount it with the speed turn toes, basically reduce the delta angle by swapping for a much lower heel tower instead of shimming. Is this compatible/ possible? On the heel page I see the term “unsanctioned super binding”, but it seems like the speed turn toe isn’t really that different from the low tech toe. If you think it would work would you be able to send me the dimensions of the heel base platform, and the distance between the screw holes? Thanks as always.
Mixing those Toe pieces would not be a problem.

You will need to mount the Superlight heel pretty close to center of the existing holes to work. Depends on where your heel is on the adjustment track now.
